At my studio, work on finishing the monoprints on cotton continues. The process is such fun - drawing with my sewing machine to develop the imagery in each print.
|'Misty Morning' - gelliplate monoprint with machine stitching, 11"x8"|
|'Summer Smoke II' - gelliplate monoprint with machine stitching, 6.25"x5.5"|
|'Twenty' - gelliplate monoprint with machine stitching, 6.25"x4.75"|
For these prints, I used a combination of Akua-color monoprint ink, Golden Open acrylic paint and regular Liquitex acrylics bought on sale. My preference is the Golden Open acrylics, but I am learning the ropes with the Akua-color inks which are quite thin and are best applied in a very thin layer. (If you ask me).
Off to the Mighty Mighty Day Job and then I am back to stitching. What are you up to this week in the way of creating?
